Play with the budget


This is a really cool, free web game created by American Public Media, a non-profit media company that includes shows on NPR.  A friend passed it on to me, saying, “It was developed with the help of both the McCain and Obama campaign, though apparently the McCain campaign was less forthcoming about fiscal impacts of his policies.”

You can choose where to invest and what taxes to change, and see how it affects America’s economic future.  For each of the policy choices, you can read details with pros and cons.  It’s filled with information about many of the choices for budget changes, and it presents them in a fun way.  You definitely should check it out!
